We love following along with our students once they leave UR and begin to deepen their influence on the world. As soon as Emily Churchill, ’19, graduated in May, she was awarded a yearlong international fellowship with the Manna Project International in Ecuador.

The fellowship involves teaching English, designing and managing health and nutrition programs, and supervising volunteers — and builds upon an internship she completed last year (also in Ecuador) under alum Mark Odenwelder, ’98, as part of the Bonner Civic Fellowship program.

“I’m grateful to return, this time to Quito, to a position that combines a bit of everything that I love — teaching, community development, and international exchange,” Churchill said.

We know she’ll be a pro — especially considering she sought out six (!) study abroad experiences and participated in the first EnCompass trip while at UR.

Congratulations, Emily!
